One Sweet Christmas - Darlene Fredette

4 Stars!

It’s going to take more than a few pieces of chocolate to fill this Scrooge’s heart with Christmas cheer. Luckily Candice Cane has a whole shop full...

Candice Cane is not proud of the way she acted after her last encounter with Jackson Frost. Sure revenge was fun, but it’s left Jackson standing, angry and looking for answers, on the welcome mat in her chocolate shop. Now he’s after some revenge of his own.

Jackson returned to his small hometown for one reason and one reason only...so he’s not sure how he’s ended up in a Santa suit in the middle of a chocolate shop, at the behest of its beautiful owner, instead of high-tailing it back to the city as fast as he can.

Jackson wants nothing to do with his small town past, but Candice shows him what he didn’t even know he’d been missing. Can a bit of Christmas magic heal old wounds and offer up a future neither saw coming?
An avid reader since childhood, Darlene loved to put a pencil to paper and plot out stories of her own. Thanks to the support of her family, Darlene has been able to fulfill her dream to write full time. Her debut novel, Keeping Secrets, has been receiving great reviews. Darlene can be found writing in her home office with the family dog lying close by.

Cute, cute, cute! I don't know what it is about books set in candy shops (or coffee shops, bakery's, cafe's etc.) but I just love them so much more! To me it makes the reading so much more fun and you can really feel like you are right there.

This is a sweet, romantic, but fun book to read! I loved the characters, nice character development. And I love the author's creativity with the names - Candace Cane, Jackson Frost heehee. After all it is Christmas, its the time to get silly.

All on all a very nice quick read to get you in the Christmas spirit!

A big thanks to "Bridging the Gap" for sending me this e-book to read and review.
